What Can Be Done About My Grandson’s Discolouration?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

My 12 year old grandson is losing the top layer of his two front teeth. They are really yellow and is affecting his confidence. He has had some treatment at the hospital where they scrape his teeth and paint on a layer. It looks good for a couple of weeks but then deteriorates. Is there anything that can be done? His dentist said not until he is at least 16 when he could possibly have veneers. I have contacted several dentists, they have said the same thing and that it has probably stemmed from his diet as a young child. I disagreed as he had a very good diet and never until this day drinks fizzy juice.

I Have A Discoloured Front Tooth Which Needs A Veneer. How Do I Choose The Right Dentist?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have a discoloured front tooth after having root canal treatment a few years ago. Which then got darker and darker. Are there any other options apart from a veneer to cover this up or make the colour the same as my other teeth? I am considering veneers but don’t like the idea of them falling off in a few years. How do I choose the right dentist? My local dentist cost is £200 which is considerably cheaper than I have seen online which worries me. Your advice will be appreciated.

I Had A Bridge Fitted For Cosmetic Reasons But It’s Changed My Gum-line. Is There Anything I Can Do?

Friday, May 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark,

4 years ago I had 2 bridges fitted across my top front teeth for cosmetic reasons, partly to cover a discoloured tooth which had been bumped years before. When these were fitted, my gum line changed massively and looked terrible and I noticed my new tooth was discoloured like the previous one.

Now, 4 years later I am as self conscious of my new smile as I was of my old one and feel like I have paid £3000 for nothing. I have spoken to the dental practice but they have basically told me I have to live with it at the same time as admitting to me that they wouldn’t be happy using my smile as an advertisement for their cosmetic services.

What can I do if anything?

Hi Mark, Could You Advise Me On Any Clinics Which Deal With Single Tooth Repair?

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013
Q.

Dear Mark. I broke a corner of right front tooth when I was a child, it was very unnoticeable. Then when I was 22 I decided to repair it. I went to a private dentist. Who told me that if she put filling on the corner it would come off, so she told me of another way of repairing it. She said it would be a proper repair. Unfortunately, she removed nearly half of the visible part of my tooth, then made a hole in the root canal and put a metal peg in it and then created a new tooth. It was thicker and after few weeks it got darker. I came back and ask her to do anything about it, but she only said it changed colour because its dead now. Later it had been redone by other dentist, the peg had to be removed but it’s never been the same as my left tooth. Since then I do not like to picture myself with a full smile.
I so much want to have it done with Harley Street Dental Clinic, but your receptionist said that you do not deal with single tooth repair unfortunately.
I totally agree that this work should be done with by very experienced and very high quality cosmetic dentist. Would you be so kind as to advise me?
Is there are any chance to have it done with you in Harley Street Dental Clinic?

A Dentist Has Previously Damaged A Tooth And Now It’s Discoloured. Would A Veneer Work?

Monday, November 4th, 2013
Q.

Hello, my right front tooth is visibly darker then left one. It has been badly damaged by dentist 7 years ago (not in the UK) and changed colour. It has been re-done few times, but I never did get the perfect result. Both the shape and colour is different and it is thicker than my left tooth.
Is it possible to make it the same as left front tooth with a porcelain veneer?
I can attach picture of it if needed? Thank you.

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi, Is it possible to have a really white teeth regardless of how discolored the teeth are? I tried the teeth whitening and I wasn’t satisfied with the result, it was a total waste of time and money, My teeth still look the same and its really embarrassing. If it’s possible, what procedure would one undergo and the cost? Also, what would be the best treatment for me to have a straight teeth line, I am 33 at the moment , Is a perfect white and straight teeth line still possible? Please, let me know the best option suitable in my case. Thanks.

Why Has My Front Tooth Started To Discolour?

Friday, April 26th, 2013
Q.

I recently have a bad fall and injured my face including the mouth area. After several days I have noticed that my Top Front Left Tooth has started to discolour from the gum downwards and looks almost purple in colour. The pain is severe as I have a lot of scar tissue to the underside of my lip and therefore reluctant to see a dentist until the swelling has subsided. I cannot bite down on any food as I find this very uncomfortable and almost painful although there appears to be loss of sensation. Does this mean I have damaged nerves and will the tooth recover. If not what can you suggest on making the tooth white again.I would really appreciate any help that you can give me on this matter as I am really stressed about this and worried that it will get worse.

What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Darker Than The Rest

Friday, January 25th, 2013
Q.

I have a dark front tooth after root canal following a blow to the face. My dentist who does not specialise in cosmetics does not want to do internal bleaching as she said the original work was done so well she can’t see the filling. I don’t want an implant or crown as the tooth is in good condition and my dentist is nervous of a veneer as she doesn’t know if the darkness will show through. The original work was done 2 years ago and some days the tooth is darker then others (don’t know why this is) but I don’t believe it is going to get any darker are there any other option

Will my root treated tooth discolour and how can I prevent this?

Thursday, November 29th, 2012
Q.

Hi Andrew,

I had a white filing in a tooth many years ago, i am not sure what the official tooth is called but it is my first big tooth in my upper right arch. My dentist has told me that it has leaked and now i need root treatment (I am sure they talked about removing the root). I am okey with this, well as ok as anyone is about dental treatment. My issue is from a cosmetic perspective. Is there a cosmetic procedure that will keep my tooth white and looking the same as i have heard that a tooth can discolor after root treatment. is there anything else that i should be thinking about or asking about to keep my tooth as healthy and looking as well as can be?

Thanks

I have been suffering from tooth pain for around 4 years now after having root canal surgery, what’s causing this problem?

Thursday, August 30th, 2012
Q.

Hello,  i have suffered from tooth pain in my left side canine tooth for about 4 years, which was treated with antibiotics but the pain never went. 2-3 years ago I had a root canal performed on it, since I still experience pain and i have told my dentist several times he gives x-rays every time but says there’s nothing wrong, the tooth has dullness now and looks rather awful, and i now experience pain in the canine but on the right side also it’s very similar pain, but not as agonising. I’m fed up of my dentist I feel fobbed off constantly, I’m wondering if I should demand to be referred to hospital regarding it. I’d be really grateful for your opinion. Thank you.
